Energetics is a partner on two winning teams for the second round of awards from the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Consortia (AMTech). The AMTech awards support industry-driven consortia in developing research plans and charting collaborative actions to solve high-priority technology challenges impeding the growth of advanced manufacturing in the United States.

As part of a team led by Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), Energetics will leverage its industry knowledge and strategic planning expertise to develop the “Consortium Formation and Technology Roadmap Development for Remanufacturing in the Circular Economy,” which will address the most serious challenge in the future of manufacturing—material availability. Energetics will work with RIT’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability to assemble and facilitate productive discussion among a consortium of prominent remanufacturing industry leaders and researchers from national laboratories, with the goal of identifying environmental and economic adjustments needed to address material availability.

As part of a team led by the University of Houston, Energetics will leverage its strategic planning and analysis expertise to develop an industry-wide consortium roadmap to overcome the technological obstacles inhibiting the growth of commercial manufacturing of high-temperature superconductors (HTS). The team will assess the challenges, barriers, and risks of HTS technology in applications such as power grids, rotating machinery, and magnets with the goal of expediting the transition of superconductor manufacturing to commercialization.
